SACRAMENTO, California | California 2018 midterm primary turnout highest in 2 decades
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s June primary saw the highest percentage of voter turnout in a midterm primary election since 1998.
More than 37 percent of registered voters cast ballots in the primary. That’s up more than 12 percent from the previous midterm primary in 2014, when turnout hit a record low. It is closer to turnout levels in the 2010 and 2006 primaries, when 33 percent of registered voters participated.
California Secretary of State Alex Padilla certified the results Friday.
